The vibe at White House Campground
Drop some White House Campground knowledge on us.
White House was a great place to stay. I was on my way from Las Vegas to lake Powell and passed by. its a little bit of a drive but not bad. I did it just fine in a Nissan Altima. It does gonover a wash so if it's been raining you might not be able to reach it. When I got there there was no one there but a car at the trail head. The vault bathrooms were clean. They were renovating the campground at the time and it was free to stay during work. As a woman traveling alone I was a little apprehensious to stay there alone but as I left someone else showed up so I decided to stay. I'm glad I did. It was beautiful and the sky was the darkest, clearest sky I'd seen all summer. Great access to glen canyon. About a half hour away.
White House is super easy to reach, scenic and has everything you would need to kick off an adventure into Paria Canyon, the surrounding Vermillion Cliffs or plan your attack for attempting the ever-elusive lottery for The Wave hike.
The White House Trailhead & Campground sits just north of the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument. There are only 5 walk-in sites ($5 per night), very clean bathrooms, and grilled firepit/picnic tables in each site. The camping area is surrounded by beautifully sculpted and colored sandstone cliffs that make for fun quick hikes and gorgeous views of the area.
The Paria River cuts the desert landscape like a snake, winding through the wash just south of the camping area.
